Muscat Blanc on Snooth

  • Chateau de Saint Cosme Vin de Pays d'Oc Little James' Basket Press Blanc 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty nice French white blend of viognier and sauvignon blanc. The viognier comes through here with some floral notes and dried apricot. There's just a bit of zing from the sauvignon's acidity that plays well with the viognier. Very good QPR. Read More

  • Beni di Batasiolo Bosc Dla Rei Moscato d'Asti DOCG 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I was first introduced to Moscato at the Mondavi winery in Napa. Our guide said Robert Mondavi had a glass each day and they included it in our tasting flight. I love big red cabs, but really enjoyed the moscato that day. The DOCG is one of our favorite moscatos - very flavorful. Nice desert wine, and just plain enjoyable. Read More

  • Primo Amore Moscato 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I'm a very inexperienced drinker so I always stay away from things I'm not sure how they'll taste. I tried this at Olive Garden with the recommendation from our waiter and now I've been on the hunt to BUY it locally. It's is PERFECT. Loved it, heaven in my mouth! Could turn me into a wino. ;) Read More

  • The Skinny Vine Mini Moscato 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Light, sweet, wet and not tart like other Moscatos I've tried. It's a notch above Riuniti's D'oro which seems to be a typical crowd favourite. No tartness, no off-putting aftertaste, it's easy on the palette and doesn't weigh the consumer down with heady flavors and complexities. Read More

  • Here's the report from our trip to the Russian River area and Mendocino.Our normal routine is to split one tasting and then buy one or two bottles of what tasted best.  I find that we can do an adequate job of tasting, visit a decent number of wineries and still be standing at the end of the day.  We visit places which welcome walk-ins and we al...
